Discussion for Galatians 6:6

  • Andrew S on Galatians 6:6
    You know, was studying Galatians 6:6 here and realized I memorized it in the KJV. let him "communicate all good things....". Funny, my original understanding of that verse was that IF the Lord inspires me with some revelation (actual "epipheny") by what the teacher instructs and/or in my own time & Bible study the Lord should reveal deeper things to me- Then it is my responsibility to come back to the Pastor or teacher and share with them the things which the Lord has recently revealed to me.... In other words, blessing the leader that I've been studious before the Lord and because of the leader's oversight, I've grown in understanding and revelation of God's Word.- Also this blesses "the teacher" with a form of submission in God's Holiness and instruction, showing him good faith that I'm a "good soldier" under the teacher's tutelage. (Yes, I appreciate the online studies which show in other versions clearly that the student/members should with humility and gratitude physically support or encourage the pastors and teachers in leadership- something often lacking in today's Western congregations /individual membership).- Still, I like my original King James understanding and since I'm in a present mentoring role, this is one of the verses I'm going to show my Bible student and it's various interpretations, not so I can physically gain from him, but so as he moves forward-soon w/o my influence that he can go on to become a better, more-disciplined and committed disciple-follower of Christ Himself; also as he similarly has a gift of "teaching" and has been resistant in being willing to acknowledge the obvious gifts (where he has taught in secular forums of the past) and thus submit himself to other church leadership for future training and practical use of his God-given talents. (don't worry, praise the Lord, he is getting there even presently). Amen.- God Bless all the sincere students and servants of the Lord and of His Word.

    I appreciated your comment very much Andrew. The teacher/student relationship & accompanying responsibility is a serious one as that 'union' will require much care & consideration of one other. The teacher: that he teaches correctly & with well supported references & appropriate illustrations; & the student: that he learns in all humility & sense a liberty to question or require amplification of that which is before him. The teacher must also be prepared to listen & carefully weigh the propositions or other possibilities that the student presents, even as elementary or unenlightened they may be. When a student has such confidence in his teacher, even as the teacher seeks to impart knowledge with the intent of shaping the mind & character of his student, then an outcome of real & lasting change can be expected. And for you to determine & identify those Spiritual Gifts & character that the Lord so bestows upon the student, will be the catalyst for him to verify & build up on it.

    A pastor truly led of the Spirit & so blessed to receive an observation or revelation from his congregant, should with all desire entertain such an occasion, knowing that his ministry is bearing fruit & his member(s) are using their times at home to more useful sacred purposes. Sadly, many pastors often only expect doctrinal or textual criticism & highlighting of their shortcomings at the end of the Lord's Day message. Your encouragement of him will also strengthen his resolve & add to his faith & walk in the Lord. Keep up the good work Andrew & the Lord bless you.
